Is blown in (cellulose and fiberglass) insulation considered green?
Cellulose insulation can be considered green because it is mainly composed of recycled materials. However, a minimal portion of its composition is treated with borates, a chemical treatment.  Fiberglass insulation may also be eco-friendly with half or more of its composition is from recycled materials. Take it from Owens-Corning, a trusted name in the fiberglass insulation industry that admits to using 53-73 percent of post-consumer recycled materials for the production of fiberglass insulation.



Can blown cellulose insulation result in fires?
Cellulose insulation is made up of recycled materials- mostly paper.  In its raw phase, the paper is flammable but during production, cellulose insulation is treated with a chemical called borates.  Borates are categorized as Class I fire retardant. Class I includes flammables like wood and paper whereas Class II flammables refer to gasoline, oil and the like.

How do I know if my HVAC system was adequately cleaned?
